A wedding, snow and posies

Here are my grandson Luke and his Bride Ricci with Luke's parents and myself.
They were married on Saturday afternoon at the bride's parents home. It was a small but very touching wedding. Yes I got tears, and oodles of pictures. I ate ice cream cake and drank champagne. Whoo-Hoo! What a great day!
Congratulations Luke and Ricci! I pray you have a lifetime of wedded bliss.

I took the above photo looking out the windshield on the way home from the wedding. I like the sunset and the long straight road. There is something calming about the darkness of this photo.

Yes, we have been getting snow for the past three days, and the wind is absolutely freezing cold! I was able to walk the pups this afternoon, but the wind is still pretty chilly and Gailbraith mountain which is close to me is all white again. Dang!!! I thought it was spring! So did the hummers. See their feeder?

A few weeks ago I bought two ranaculus. As you can see one is a lighter shade of pink. I love them but hadn't got around to getting them in the ground. It's a good thing because they can't take freezing temps. These lovely flowers are sitting on my kitchen counter until old man winter gets lost and Miss. Spring makes her grand appearance!

I thought you'd like to see the window sill above my kitchen sink. I've noticed that in more modern homes, you don't see window sill's much anymore, but I love them and wouldn't want a house without them. Where else can I put all my cute treasures and precious plants?

See the two Impatient plants? I had them growing on the back deck last year and when fall came and the temps began to drop, I did what I have done for many years. I snip a small piece of the plant and put it in a glass of water on this window sill. Within a week or so it has roots so I plant it in a cute little pot. I found these pots at our Goodwill store. One was a dollar and the teapot that the pink impatient is in was a quarter. Can't beat the price.

Throughout the winter I have watered them and started giving a little fertilizer in February, which made them double in size. They have bloomed all winter for me and are still going strong.

This is a nice way to bring your summer flowers indoors to enjoy throughout the cold winter months. And when I look through the blossoms to the icy snow on the ground outside, it sort of makes me feel sassy.

Well dear friends, this has been a fun weekend, even if we did get snowed on. The wedding was lovely and so was the champagne. ((((smile))))
